I am delighted to welcome you to Podar International School Gandhinagar through this website. I hope to convey the Mission, the Vision and the passion that both the management and the school team exude through all that they do here, making PIS Gandhinagar such a wonderful place to be. Helen Keller said, “The best and the most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart”. We believe the joy and the journey of learning must be one such treasurable experience for anyone who is associated with us.

We are here not to offer frigid schooling in order to just generate impressive score cards but we at Podar stand deeply committed to develop and equip our students for all the perceivable challenges of the 21st century. The vision, to be the best by raising the traditional standards of educational possibilities and outcomes for students, parents and society, requires 1. Right understanding of challenges 2. Focus on quality consciousness and 3. Mental agility and ability to learn afresh at all stages of life by adapting to dynamics of changes around us.

If we understand it correctly, for educators and parents, the challenge is to be ready and be flexible to adopt a new paradigm of education for 21st century. Are we enabling our children to live in a world which is increasingly diverse, tech savvy, globalised and media centric? The changes are so fast paced that those of us, in charge of preparing young minds to negotiate the curves and bumps of the road of life in a dynamic world, have no idea how things will look 5 years down the line much less in another 20-30 years. So what is expected when we look forward to 21st century education?

Growing as a smart 21st century school PIS Gandhinagar ‘Greens’ is a learner’s abode where process of education translates into creating and nurturing in a child life long energy for positive learning,aspects of emotional intelligence, skills of resource management, attitude for problem solving, ability to think critically and creatively, zeal to innovate, courage to dream big, understanding of our cultural roots and traditions, respect for human values, flexibility to unlearn with time to adapt to changes, openness to be part of globalisation, concern for environment and nature, sensitivity towards all fellow beings,love for life,willingness for continuous personal growth, awareness about social issues, consciousness for community service and most importantly a clear conscience reflected through behaviour and personality. Education indeed is a monumental expedition! Our sincere promise is to children for a life time partnership for rich learning experiences.

With Smiles, love and warm regards
